In today's NHL rumors, how will the Pittsburgh Penguins handle injuries to Evgeni Malkin and Nick Bjugstad?

Week 1 of the 2019-20 season is complete and the Pittsburgh Penguins had a roller-coaster week. With all three games at home, the Penguins fell flat against the Buffalo Sabres and Winnipeg Jets but looked really good against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The biggest takeaway of Week 1 was the injuries. Centers Evgeni Malkin and Nick Bjugstad were injured against the Blue Jackets and placed on injured reserve, and forward Patric Hornqvist was injured against the Jets. Each week we will take a look at the three stars of the week for the Penguins and highlight the club's best-performing players. Third Star: Matt Murray Even though he struggled Tuesday night against the Jets, goaltender Matt Murray earned himself the third star of the week. In the season opener, he had 38 saves on 41 shots and kept the Penguins in that game.

There usually aren't too many negative takeaways after earning a 7-2 victory over a division rival. However, the Pittsburgh Penguins' big win over the Columbus Blue Jackets left fans holding their breath and waiting for more info on the in-game injuries to Evgeni Malkin and Nick Bjugstad. Both forwards were placed on injured reserve Monday and are expected to miss at least a month with Malkin potentially missing a bit more time. https://twitter.com/penguins/status/1181317155142475777?s=20 It's tough to spin this one; Malkin is one of the game's most dominant players when he's in a groove and desperately needed a bounce-back season. Bjugstad has been great as the team's third-line center since he was acquired prior to last season's trade deadline, recording the team's sixth-best Corsi percentage among players appearing in at least 25 games. The Penguins came into the season expecting to win games with strong forward depth but it's going to be a struggle over the next several...
